Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best September+ Mango besides Keitt?
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:48:59 AM »
I have found my Peach Cobbler to actually be slightly earlier than my Lemon Zest. I have no idea about Honey Kiss but would like to see any mango tree out yield my Keitt for I do not think it is possible. It may be a fungus magnet but for sheer yield and late ripening, I do not think it can be beat.



 Honey Kiss will fruit itself to death.. the damn thing just drips with mangos

Lots of people eat mango skin. Pretty common among mango connoisseurs. Mango neophytes are generally averse to eating the skin though.

Till your dumb ass gets dermatitis and you then realize you cannot do it any more because your skin is cracking on the corner of your mouth and won't stop. I have seen so many stupid posts you make but this one may be tops for the dumb ass of the year award, which is a crowded field so congrats on the win. Gain some knowledge on this subject before you spew stupidity for others to see.


FatBoy gots himself some of dem dar anger issues, i be thinkin his mama didn't give him any hugs or lovin when he was just wee little boy... now he be all growed up and full of angey and naughty words... he gonna need a spankin for havin dat tone wif the Cookie Monster

As soon as one of you fools offer the same knowledge and insight as Rob does into this forum, then you too will have the right to be a dick! The amount of help he offers all of us is nuts... if you live in South Florida he is available at either Excalibur or Walter's place to help with just about anything needed related to fruit and fruit trees. He has personally helped me more times then I can count! 
Thank you Rob, keep up the good work!

12' for the sweet tart is probably too big for me to consider. Since I'm in 9b and have to frost protect in winter, anything over 8' doesn't tend to make it through the winter. I am actually planning to add Honey Kiss as I've heard it can be maintained small. Anyone got comments on what they taste like mature green?

The nice compact mango tree list here http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=17443.0 does have Edgar on it as well. Anyone know how they taste mature green?

skhan, thanks for the reminder about Nam Doc Mai 4! That might be a good choice for me. Are the Bram Kea Mun and Keo Savoy similar in tree size to Nam Doc Mai 4? How would you describe their flavor differences? So hard to know what variety I experienced in Thailand that I liked so much!




Not sure how they taste green but ripe they are amazing! tree can be kept around 8-feet with proper pruning. and a somewhat slow grower...trust me you wont be disappointed

Honey Kiss appears to be a mid to late and easy to keep small in my yard.

Honey Kiss appears prone to jelly seed.


Never had jelly seed on any of my Honey Kiss

Someone has to know when they are ready to pick? same as a finger lime?

My Fairchild is always one of my best mangos! everyone loves them, maybe not a top 5 every year but always a top 10 and it handles everything thrown at it.... great tree everyone should have 1

Chintalala is a mutation of a mamey sapote (I forget which cultivar). The fruits are small, about the size of a small canistel, but packed with flavor. The tree produces twice a year, in spring and fall. As with other mutations (eg, the variegated guavaa), some branches revert back to the non-mutated version.

The fruit is only known in El Salvador as far as I know, and even in El Salvador it's not widely known. It was one of the best tasting mameys that I've had. I brought back budwood and grafted to a green sapote rootstock that I happened to have laying around. All grafts took and are doing quite well :-). In a few years I should have some chintalala fruits :-). I'm curious to see if it performs the same here in FL.



Jeff I know this is old but did your Chintalala ever fruit? and if so was/is it the same?
